In America’s Friendliest College Town, we cheer on the Cowboys all year round, but October brings a schedule packed with Cowboy and Cowgirl athletics, and OSU traditions and celebrations unlike any other. If you are rooted in Stillwater traditions, and Loyal and True to O-S-U, there’s no time like now to come back to celebrate the Cowboy family!

Cowgirl Softball and Equestrian start off their fall seasons this month, with Cowboy Football and Cowgirl Soccer still in the thick of action. OSU Cross Country and Cowgirl Tennis will host Invitationals and Regional Tournaments… and we haven’t even made it to the middle of the month! The Cowboy Stampede Rodeo and America’s Greatest Homecoming will be here before we know it, allowing us to celebrate the traditions and history of Oklahoma State University.

Athletics - Equestrian, Soccer, Softball
